At the beginning of the year, I did not even imagine that another book would be forthcoming in 2018. I was just thrilled to have accomplished my original goal of becoming a published author withFeeling Human. However, my mind changed and late Fall, I started working diligently to produce this by the end of the year. And success! 🙂
This book is the collection of all the pieces I posted here on I Write Her. 365 days of what was rolling around in my brain put in a book. I think this became a reality because of the overwhelming support I’ve received here. The readership here helped to boost my confidence level and my desire to create. I felt comfortable to share, and it spurred me on to do more.
For those who follow me here, you’ll know the pieces in the book because they are all the posts from my blog. Also, there are fifteen new poems which were never published on I Write Her. These were days where posts were either announcements, the TMI Tag or Awards answering questions. Relevant at the time, but not something that reflected the intent of this book.
A big shout-out to my friend Candice Louisa Daquin! She was incredibly supportive of this project and supplied the foreword for the book. I will be forever grateful for her love and encouraging words for my efforts! If you have not read her blogs or her books, do it! You can find her work here on Amazon. She is an incredible writer! You can thank me later. 🙂
To purchase a copy from Amazon, just click on the link under the picture above. Or if you are interested in purchasing a signed copy of the book, I will probably do a bulk purchase for my inventory sometime in January. Just send me a message on my contact page, and I will add you to the list.
So what do I do next? I’ve got a few thoughts, but I’ll share that with you next year!
Thank you all for the heartfelt love and support you showed me in 2018!!
always tossed about
life’s waves pitching you around
riding out the storms
Attaining maturity gives you the ability to throw an anchor overboard at just the right times. It’s a knowing that life will be a wild ride but you’ll always be able to hang on. You understand that things will eventually calm down to where you can survive. And be in command of a bigger boat.
Sometimes life is like trying to sleep when you are having a restless night.
You just can’t get comfortable. Feels like you’ve moved in a million directions and either you can’t get back to what felt like the perfect spot or there just isn’t one anymore. And you’re tired of more of the same.
